The Hawthorns: Home of West Brom(credit: Wikipedia
St Johnstone boss Derek McInnes has played down speculation he could be in the running for the West Brom job.
The Baggies axed Roberto Di Matteo at the weekend after suffering a 13th defeat in their last 18 games in all competitions, and former midfielder McInnes has emerged as a possible successor to Di Matteo at The Hawthorns.
However, the 39-year-old told BBC Scotland’s Sportsound: “I can understand it because I played for them, but I'm not agitated to jump at the first sign of a bit of interest.
“I'm happy where I am at St Johnstone at the minute.”
He added: “I'm a bit sceptical of these things. I've been linked with it in the past, but I'm more than happy with what I'm doing at St Johnstone.
“There's a lot of progression within the team and areas where we can go and achieve things.
“I want to do as well as we can in the cup and get to the top six.
“That's all we're concentrating on, but I'm sure if there was anything in it, our chairman would be the first to let me know.
“I have a great relationship with him and ultimately he'll decide.
“Maybe in time, it will happen - I am ambitious and I want to do as well as I can in this job, but I must stress that I'm not looking to jump ship at the first sign of opportunity.”
